Work Processes

  • WP1: Specification of the physiotherapeutic programme, service definition, DRIR
  • WP2: Patient organisation and data evaluation, DRIR
  • WP3: Exercise Equipment, ExercITe
  • WP4: Software development, Virtual-Fit & DRIR


Enumeration of traps

  • Milestone's are not achieved
  • University has his own interests for building the system on their new framework
  • Virtual-fit is taken over by Orangina (although merely typical ~according to Origina)
  • Software not working stable
  • Database compability problems
  • Cynical comments about the ExercITe equipment
  • Priority problems at ExercITe about AAH

Global perspective

Negative. Although this is an ambitious and well though off project, people are just not ready for this kind of technology. The target of this project mostly relies in physically challenged elderly people. If they are not capable of coping with the internet, the project will eventually fail.

Stakeholders perspective

* Selling exercise equipment Costumer research points out that the customer are not ready for this equipment yet. Also the Physiologist say that the computer can never replace the necessary human interaction with the patient.

  • Spreading innovative products to a broad market

In theory possible, but if there are no customers it won't work. The new innovations and developments are positive though.
